Oakland Raiders: 5 players who must be better in Week 6
By Brad Weiss
Leon Hall was brought in this offseason to bring some veteran leadership to the cornerback position in Oakland, a position that has been a weakness over the last few seasons. Instead, he has become just another part of the problem, and since a solid game against Miami, he has been on a steady decline since.
The Raiders have decided to bench starter Gareon Conley in favor of Daryl Worley, who came off suspension for the Week 5 matchup against the Chargers. Hall is going to figure to play a big role against Seattle as well, as Paul Guenther loves to play his veterans, and he trusts that Hall is going to get the job done for him.
Hall appeared in 39 defensive snaps on Sunday, and was once again one of the lowest-rated players on the team. He is going to continue to get playing time as long as Guenther is the defensive coordinator, and you can expect Seattle to pick on him this Sunday.
